Around the World Embassy Tour

Around the World Embassy Tour will showcase embassies from Africa, Asia, Oceania, the Middle East, and the Americas, with artists and artisans, performers, lecturers, teachers, and others providing a range of educational and cultural programming designed for people of all ages. There will be free drinks (bring id if you're gonna drink alcoholic beverages, lol), free food, folk life music, free stuff, dancing, just chilling, etc. It's awesome!!!!!

Official website information here:
http://www.culturaltourismdc.org/portal/signature-events

You'll see participating embassies, maps, tips, and more. For those who will be there early and sharp, I'll be at the Australian Embassy with my girlfriend a little before 10am. Australia and Phillipines are two of the embassies that have really long lines later on. They're also both huge. After that though, it's every man/woman for themselves. Lol. If you see me, say hello :-) My walking route will proceed up Massachusetts Avenue from Scott Circle all the way up to the Brazilian embassy almost 2 miles away before taking a bus back to my car. So yeah, bring comfortable walking shoes!

Here's a map that can help plan your trip. http://www.culturaltourismdc.org/portal/embassy-map
If you're coming later in the day and driving, parking is going to be really competitive and tough for the cool embassies. You'll have to park far away and walk but free residential area parking is available.

      Aw! My gf and I drove on time but the city was doing heavy sewer repairs coming into DC. It was bad and by the time I got to the Australian embassy all the close by parking was taken. Hope you enjoyed the food at Australia and the Phillipines. They had some of the best, actually :-)

      I will plan my itinerary soon and will be bringing some of my students from Towson University. This event by its nature is not conducive to large groups. We'll be wandering between different embassies with no fixed timeline and cannot accomodate late comers- in this case that will be most people bc of the early start time. I will post my starting point for early birds who want to hang out at the beginning. After that everyone is free to visit the countries and cultures that interests them.

    The best thing about DC really is the culture. With the foreign governments actually being in the city via their embassies, you get access to whole different part of the world.
    I've gone to this event several years in a row and still haven't seen all the embassies. Beautiful buildings, free food and drink, music, dance, history. This one has it all.
